A selfish Model T that gets whacked by a Train

Name that Book

I am looking for a children's book about a selfish automobile- looked like a Model T - or some old automobile - illustrated in the style of P D Eastman (but, I cannot find any P D Eastman books like it). It may not have been a Model T - I was only 4 - 5 years old at the time.

It would have to have been published before 1974. But, I presume it was published well before then as the subject was this mean old car.

The Model T was a selfish automobile and would run over anything that got in its path.

I remember it almost ran over chickens (or ducks) and then some larger animals and possibly almost hitting people - leaving messes and destruction in its path.

Finally, it decided it wasn't going let a train get across its path and sped up to beat the train.

It didn't win.

For some reason, this popped into my head this morning, and I cannot find it - nor let go of the desire to find it! Any help would be most appreciated.
